Spouses and partners programme

Life in expatriation can be quite challenging, both for the scientist as well as for the family members accompanying him/her. Espace Ulys wants to support spouses and partners of international scientists on the challenge they encounter upon arrival in Lyon. To foster the integration of spouses and partners and make this period of expatriation a great experience for all, Espace Ulys offers spouses and partners to participate in the "Spouses and Partners Programme". You can benefit of the following:

  • Professional support
  • Social & friendly integration support

Please register to the online registration form to benefit from this support.The registration will help us to understand better your needs and expectations.


professional support

If you relocated to Lyon with the idea of working here, please do not hesitate to send us your CV.

We can facilitate an individual appointement with an ADERLY HR consultant to help you in your job search. She will help you define and/or adjust your job search and understand the Lyon’s job market depending on your profil and sector of expertise.

Espace Ulys organises occasionally workshops for the professional integration of spouses. These activities are meant to help the person define its personal and professional project and give tools to achieve them.


social integration SUPPORT

In order to overcome isolation experienced by many trailing spouses, Espace Ulys invites all spouses and partners of international scientists to take part in a multicultural group, make friends and stay active!

"Spouses & Partners" organises events dedicated to spouses of international researchers (e.g.: french breakfast in a café, visit of an exhibition of contemporary art, cheese tasting).

If you wish to participate in the activities of the group and receive further information, please register here.

It exists also the possibility to engage yourself as a volunteer in proposing and/or organising activities.
